John Bead will be there and we have two great workshops you can sign up for. The conference registration begins tomorrow!
Mega Show 2015: Conference & Education Artisan Workshop: Tropical Sensation Bracelet
Soutache, used in the 16th century to make a wide range of trims and tassels as well as in bookbinding, is now one of the hottest trends in jewelery making. Lengths of soutache are stacked to create a visual element and stable base for crystals. It can be curved and shaped into many patterns. Fernando DaSilva takes soutache to a playground where style merges into attitude with pizzazz. Class sponsored by Dazzle-it! – a house brand of John Bead Corporation. Instructor: Fernando DaSilva
Mega Show 2015: Conference & Education Artisan Workshop: Create, Klik© Repeat
Your personal touch is “just a klik away” with the Metal Complex’s new product range cleverly titled “klik©.” Sensational new looks can be created and then modified with interchangeable jewelry. In this workshop, resin diva and designer Carmi Cimicata will teach how to add your own flair to blank bezel snaps, which can be filled with resin, epoxy, beads and more. Create unique and coordinated jewelry that’s trendy and versatile with an incredible added value. Instructor: Carmi Cimicata
